Sounds cool and if it works--even cooler. Where are you located?

Queensland Australia I'd say.

2H is about the same output as the early 258

The 2H is a 4.0 L (3,980 cc) inline 6, 12 valve OHV diesel engine. Bore is 91 mm and stroke is 102 mm, with a compression ratio of 20.7:1. Output is 105 PS (77 kW) at 3,500 rpm - later production years 107 hp (80 kW) with 177 lb·ft (240 N·m) of torque at 2,000 rpm.

You'll need to use an outside photo sharing site like http://photobucket.com

Most likely a decent choice given where you are located.

I swaped an Toyota 1HDT in an Land Rover Defender and it was the biggest mistake ever in my life. No power and the same milage as an gas engine.

Yeah none of those old dsl's were speed demons regardless of brand. Never owned just test drove an 80'e era dsl LC in Canada. It worked well for what was expected of it. If I were planning a dedicated dsl swap into a J-truck it wouldn't be my first choice here in the states, but suspect for normal use with proper axle gearing and a manual trans it should adequate in a J-truck. Here in the states the LC dsl's were never avail so I have other options. You being in OZ and that's a common motor there and since you've already got one "I'd use it" Sometimes best to work with what ya got. You won't be winning any street light drags but it'll have enough oomph to jump onto the freeway. Again: Should be "adequate" for normal use. With any dsl motor "axle gearing" is going to be critical. Since you plan to run an OD trans I would lean toward lower axle gearing(higher numerically) than higher gearing. The older small US dsl's I'm used too like to run in the 2,000-2,500 rpm range. Much under they're a slug and much over 2500 rpms all they do is burn lotsa fuel. I'm not aware of any inherent reliability issues with the toyo dsl. The Canadian loggers are pretty happy with them and Canadian dsl fuel is horrible juice not conducive to long eng life.
Give it a go and keep us updated on your results.

like I said this is the engine out of my old cruiser with the 5spd an 4:11-1 diffs an 33s it was about 2200 rpm at 100kmh an would do it all day long
my cars now is still an 83 cruiser with a 6.2 chev diesel in it an a 89 cruiser with a factory turbo diesel so I know what to expect this engine is out of my first cruiser an I drove it everywhere for 4 years without a turbo so the j truck can't be any worse than a non-turbo 83 cruiser

For your realistic needs/expectations/location you don't need all that turbo shmerbo stuff. With your choice of tranny and axle gearing you should be golden if you can run all day at 100kph at 2200rpms. Expectations over that you'll just be making the oil companies happy. If it matters the 80's(83/84?)LC I test drove in Canada was a pickup model. Don't know the official model designation but think of older gaso LC FJ-45 pickup model and wouldn't think the weight difference would be much of a factor between the F45 and older J-series FSJ's. Sounds like a solid plan to me. Keep us updated on progress even though that motor wasn't/isn't avail in the US there are other similar and comparable inline dsl's avail and it may just sway a few folks into thinking turbos, mega valve count and computers really aren't needed for a normal use rig.

Neat. I like "use-what-ya-got" builds.
